Staff Favorites

Lost and Found won our 2006 Ubie Award, which our Children's staff gives to its favorite picture book and young adult novel.

Here's what they said about Lost and Found:

"When a sad-looking penguin appears on a young boy’s doorstep, he sets out to help it find its way back home to the South Pole. This sweet story of friendship with its perfectly matched watercolor illustrations put this book on the fast track to our hearts."

Here's the winner in the Young Adult Novel category:

"Our young adult novel winner is The Scarecrow and His Servant by Philip Pullman. This rollicking tale of chivalry, quick-wittedness and limb replacement features a turnip-headed scarecrow and his faithful servant boy, Jack."
